Mushtaque B. Barq

I was alone,

on a mount I yelled,

wayward flock joined in

with a ticket and token.

I was a topic now

without punctuations

the flow went unchecked,

in place of simile smile I pushed

"Innovation" tagged.

Now that " Change"

a rhetorical device in my hand

I used and spoiled my diction.

Shall I now dump my remains

beneath a headstone

or in the grave up above

for I now doubt

the shrouded skull be hanged.
